    Rejoice!

    I have a problem, please help if you can

    I`m student, and I have no such nessesary thing as computer yet... somtimes (like now) I can use the internet in the University, but its shurely not enouth...
    the town I live in is not big, so there is no satisfactory job becouse I dont have enouth spare time and have some other problems
    Im not complaining, but its so

    On the other hand, I read, what only 10 persents of computers in Europe and America are recycling, and others are just leaping out to the scuffles
    and littering the ecology, or becoming absolutely useless even for such uncomputerized counties as Russia, there I live in. But here we can use it! The service life of computers are years and years

    SO PLEASE SEND ME YOUR NEEDLESS OR OLD COMPUTER IF ONLY YOU HAVE IT
    What`ll cost for you fewer than to return it for remaking, and i`ll get very needed thing, and its good for ecology and its ethically good in a global scale
    Maybe that`ll be easier for you to send your old notebook due to its weight and overall dimensions
    If you are not shore how to send it, I could find the information about it in the Ihternet
    Please e-mail me

    Osublod,

    Many in America do not get rid of their old computers until they crash and are irreparable.

    We upgrade all of our PC's and keep them maintained.

    Maybe you can talk to a University Professor about donating one of their old computers. That would save shipping and handling charges.

    Greetings OsuBlod. You might price eBay's used computers. I agree with standingfirminChrist ... most folk don't typically purchase a new computer until the old one dies. Though computers are updated all the time, we have everything we need in our old (and faithful) computer package.

    The cost of shipping may be prohibitive to getting outdated computers to Russia.

    There is a 44 lb limit (and it is over 150 dollars and insurance is sky high) by usps.com and lots of restrictions, not sure a computer would get through.

    Below are the restrictions.

    -Seizure of the whole item.

    Inherited goods from abroad are admitted and are exempt from customs duties on the basis of certificates issued by consulates of the Russian Federation abroad on the basis of the law of inheritance and the composition of the legacy.

    It is prohibited to import into Russia postal items from commercial companies intended for private individuals permanently resident in Russia with the exception of legacies as well as articles admitted for repairs or replacement. However, licensed parcels from private parcel companies that have entered into a contract with VO "Vnieshintorg" are admitted. All dispatch formalities must be complied with in accordance with the current regulations in the Russian Federation.

    -If the cost of the contents is between 101 USD and 1000 USD.

    -If the quantity of articles imported exceeds three times the limit according to the internal standards set.

    Items containing articles admitted as imports the cost of which is between 1001 USD and 10,000 USD are delivered to addressees subject to payment of the customs duties at the rate of 50% of the cost of the articles.

    Items not intended for the addressee's personal use are understood to be items sent systematically in bulk even if they have different addresses and the regulation limit of the articles is complied with for each item separately. Such items are returned to the country of origin.

    I'm sorry; did you just suggest people on a Christian web site not be truthful about items you've asked them to send you?

    I cannot send a notebook laptop accross the states for $100. Since it would be sent clear to another country across the ocean, I am sure it would be much more.

    The United States Post Office does not ship things according to if they were in working order or not, but by what they weigh. So it is just as much to send a broken computer as it is to send a working computer.

    Osu, to try to explain:
    It was explained that cost between 101 and 1000 USD can be very costly to ship.

    You then stated "you can send old or not working notebookin parts, declaring his pice as 99 dollars for example, ad what ll be cheaperand noone will thith it inthe post"

    I'm not sure what you meant by "noone will thith it inthe post," but it sounded to me like you were encouraging people to take something worth more than 100 USD and declare it as 99USD or less.
